QUESTIONS

  • I owe a credit union in Michigan $25,000 for Visa and $175,000 for second mortgage. They wrote the balances off 12/30/2010. I continued to make payments on the mortgage thru May-2012. I have not received any communications from the credit union since then. In June 2013 I received a letter from a collection agency that states that I owe $200,000 on the 2nd mortgage and $32,000 on the visa. What are my rights? What am I obligated to pay? Does Arizona have a law that creditors are not allowed to solicit more than what they paid for a debt? Your help would be greatly appreciated. SB
  • Va Hospital prescribed medication causing me to suffer chest pains everytime I took the medication. VAMC Phx emergency, Drs told me I was only suffering 'Distress Syndrome' and released. Four hours later ambulance to Chandler Hospital for a Heart attack - two stents. I've since been taking 10 nitros a day for pain. The VA placed me in the Hospital for observation for 2 1/2 days. Drs did no testing just observation (Cardiologist too busy to see me) and released. I ended up in Chandler Hosp again, they did all the testing VA refused. Results I need open heart surgery & a Pro Bono Lawyer.
  • There was a pipe leaking by my parking spot for the last couple months. My water/sewer/trash Bill almost doubled for the last couple months. We pay w/s/t with our rent when it is due but we get a separate w/s/t bill and it shows that for almost 2 years my w/s/t was roughly the same until last month. The complex gets one bill and divides it by common area the apts pay the rest is divided to the residents. I believe the complex wasn't paying for their leaking pipe they were dividing it amongst the apt units. Can they legally do that?
